Where does HPM Come from?

Why Humanitarian Performance Monitoring ?


In 2013 UNICEF responded to 289 crises in 83 countries
and received US$ 1.3 billion (out of US$ 4.8b)
In 2014 UNICEF received US$ 1.7
billion for emergencies up from 1.3 billion
In 2015

APPEAL

2013

COUNTRIES
TARGET

A SYSTEM TO BE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE AND BE


ACCOUNTABLE FOR RESULTS IN EMERGENCIES

Global Standards for HPM introduction and frequency


Standards
As part of key preparedness actions

Frequency
2015: All COs

Standards for low, medium


and high emergency risk
COs

Level 1 humanitarian responses without a


humanitarian appeal. COs in regional HAC chapter

Optional
- to be agreed CO and RO

COs with appeals outside of UNICEF Humanitarian


Action for Children (HAC), less than US 5million

Optional
- to be agreed CO and RO

All Humanitarian Action for Children (HAC) countries


Twice per year
(with their own chapters)
HAC/Inter agency humanitarian appeal countries
with multiple sudden onset / ongoing chronic
emergencies that require significant humanitarian
programmes

Every 2 months

Sudden deterioration in situation requiring increase


in CO humanitarian appeal by US $ 5million

Every 2 months

Declaration of Level 2 or Level 3 Corporate


Emergency

2015 HAC: 32 COs

Monthly

May 2015: 11 COs at L3

2 WHAT: KEY COMPONENTS

What is HPM ?
HPM supports higher frequency monitoring in
humanitarian situations around:
1. Programme Progress
2. Programme Coverage and Quality
3. Country cluster/sector lead agency
accountabilities
4. Priority functions in Operations
The aim is to support the CO response by providing
regular updates on progress and gaps to inform the
ongoing management of the response

What HPM can do for the Country Office ?


Do we have enough
RESOURCES
to respond ?

Are we making
PROGRESS/ ENOUGH
PROGRESS?

How is the QUALITY


of our response and
does it meet standards?

Is UNICEF fufilling its


role as a CLUSTER lead?

TO GUIDE AND GROUND DECISIONS ON KEY INFORMATION


SIGNAL NEED FOR SUPPORT TO HEADQUARTERS AND RO
ADJUST STRATEGIES FOR THE REPONSE AND MANAGE PARTNERS
GUIDE ADVOCACY AND STRENGTHEN COORDINATION
ENSURE ACCOUNTABILITY TO BENEFICIARIES AND DONORS

Key components of HPM

Are we fulfilling
our Cluster lead

Is the quality of
the response as
expected?

- High Frequency

- Field Monitoring

The Cycle Step-by-Step with Partners


What is the cycle for HPM between UNICEF partners?
STEP ONE
Develop a response
plan guided by the
CCC interventions

STEP TWO
Pick results
indicators guided
by CCC standards

STEP THREE
Share indicators
with partners and
agree on reporting

AND STEP FIVE


Monitor results on the ground

STEP FOUR
Compile and
report progress
against targets

What does it look like real life.

Philippines
Haiyan Response
SitRep 3 months
after the cyclone
hit Tacloban

Example of HPM Use : for programme and management


Central African Republic HPM dashboard

A few tips: What works, what doesnt


Too many indicators max. is really 2-3 per sector
Indicators that are too ambitious
Common

Mistakes

and indicators that arent ambitious enough


Changing indicators too frequently
Forgetting to align UNICEF and sector indicators
Start small, and build up (quality, nuance, etc.)

Key

Tips

Write up the methodology for calculations


Stagger output and outcome indicators in time

3 HPM FOR MYANMAR

Why is it important to be ready?


Early Warning Early Action Scenarios
Risk One Unrest Rakhine, Central
Risk Two Large Cyclone (Rakhine, Ayeyarwaddy)
Risk Three Earthquake (Northern Shan, Bago)
Risk Four Conflict (Kachin, Shan)

100,000 to 200,000

Affected and/or displaced


>200,000 in case of large cyclone

Severe infrastructural damage, shortages,


potential epidemics, localized insecurity,
destroyed livelihoods

What is in place?...
Mechanisms in the Office

and what needs to be set-up
